The CAESAR (CAmion EquipÃ© d’un SystÃ¨me d’ARtillerie or Truck equipped with an artillery system) is a French self-propelled 155 mm/52-calibre gun-howitzer, installed on a 6X6 truck chassis.In 16 September 2015, Nexter has unveiled the Caesar 8×8 at DSEI 2015 with high level of mobility ensured by a modified TATRA 8×8 chassis. The 8×8 Caesar being shown is fitted with a standard unarmoured forward control four-person cab, but one of the options is a fully armour protected cab. Gross vehicle weight would depend on the level of armour protection, but is about 30 tonnes. It is powered by a 410 hp diesel engine. On 14 March 2017 the CAESAR 8 X 8 was chosen to become the new artillery system of the Danish Army. 15 howitzers will be purchased and installed on Tatra 8Ã—8 trucks. The CAESAR platform was developed by Nexter and is operated by the French, Indonesian, Saudi Arabian, Lebanon and Thai militaries.
